What is a Bluetooth? And How it Works

The latest and prominent technology standards are what defines a good computer. One of these dominant technologies is the Wireless Fidelity defined by the IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g standards.

In the next lines, we will talk about Bluetooth wireless technology. Depending on the application, Bluetooth competes or complements the Wi-Fi. It’s not wisely to focus only on the Wi-Fi gear. You should still be aware of Bluetooth. It may be handy to you.

What is Bluetooth?

The second most discussed wireless device beside Wi-Fi is Bluetooth. The inventor of this technology is L.M. Ericsson’s company of Sweden and the appearance date is 1994. Ericsson intended that Bluetooth technology united the mobile world. In 1998 SIG was formed. Companies like IBM, Nokia, Intel and Toshiba founded Bluetooth Special Interest Group in order to develop an open specification for always-on, short-range wireless connectivity based on Ericsson’s Bluetooth technology.

To distinguish the bluetooth from a network computer’s communication (often called local area network-LAN), the personal area network (PAN) was established as the designation given by the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). This is only a short list of the products that can handle the communication device via Bluetooth:

Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth (a wireless mouse)

Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop for Bluetooth (wireless multimedia

center keyboard and mouse)

Sony digital video camera recorder

HP Deskjet 995c printer

HP iPAQ H5450 Pocket PC with Bluetooth (and Wi-Fi) onboard

Ericsson Bluetooth Phone Adapter

Motorola Bluetooth Handsfree Car Kit

Belkin Bluetooth Universal Serial Bus (USB) Adapter

Initially, this device was designed to replace all the undesirable cable. It’s a low cost and low-power device that appeals to a broad audience and conserves a device’s battery life. Overall, don’t close your eyes when you see or find a possibility to make a connection via Bluetooth. You may enjoy it.
